Altered Books: Reinventing Old Books as Art

Each student should bring a hardcover book (old textbook, cookbook, children’s board book) that s/he would not mind “gutting.” Participants might select books with an appealing title or theme that could inform their alterations. Learn basic techniques like sanding and priming covers, altering interior pages, and adding additional accordion or pop-up elements in order to create your own “art book.”
